Mt Mansbridge Heavy Rare Earths Project

Red Mountain had recently announced the proposed 100% acquisition of the Mt Mansbridge Heavy Rare Earths Project from the ARD Group.

Mt Mansbridge Heavy Rare Earths Project includes three tenements in the Kimberly region of Western Australia having a total area of 280km2 with 33km in unconformity target strike length. The Killi Killi prospect in the tenement has deposits of rare earth mineral- xenotime.

China has a monopoly on the rare earth element (REE) market. It produces nearly 80% of global production of REE and 98% production in the heavy rare earth element. Outgoing US President Donald Trump had emphasised on decreasing dependence of China’s supply.

The acquisition of the project will include cash consideration of A$100,000 and 50 million ordinary share issue to ARD Group.
